Cheap-car-rental will show the extra price of renting child seats on our car rental quote page. The cost is payable locally when picking up the vehicle.
Age and weight of child are required when booking. Child Seats are available for children weighing between 5lb and 40lb. Parents/Guardians will be asked to install the seat into the vehicle.
All children 5 years of age or younger must be properly restrained in Florida, no matter where they are sitting in the vehicle. The daily charge is $12.00 per day, with a maximum of $72.00 per rental plus taxes and fees. Please be advised that we cannot guarantee child seats. We provide ONE type of child seat which can be adapted, depending upon the weight of the child and will accommodate 5lb - 40lb.
The Florida Department of Transportation advises parents to use a booster seat to correctly position the lap and shoulder belts for children once they outgrow forward facing child safety seats at about 40 pounds (approximately 18 kilograms) and around 4-5 years old. Children from approximately 40-80 pounds (approximately 18-36 kilograms) and 4'9" (1.45 meters) should ride in a belt positioning booster seat. Infants must ride rear facing in Florida until they are at least one year old and weigh 20 pounds (approximately 9 kilograms) or more.
Booster seats are available at some Dollar locations and we have only a few rear-facing infant seats for children below 20 pounds (approximately 9 kilograms) so we suggest taking your own or buying one when in Florida.
Customers are also permitted to use their own car seats in Dollar vehicles.
